We’re a bunch of engineers building a next-generation file transfer service, and we need another UI / UX expert. This is a combo position — we want somebody that can put together a mad UI but also has the ability to actually build what they design. Old school, you know?
We’ve got clients from Adobe to Zillow, and everyone in between — check out www.exavault.com. We look to companies like Apple, Square, and Twitter, with great technology, great design, and simple, well-thought out feature sets. (And yes, we all use Macs.) We care about doing things right, creating a quality product, and building the best user experience possible. If you care about the same things, we want to talk.
You’ll be working on our web app, our website, and a number of internal applications. Our app stack is a modern one — we run react.js on the frontend and node.js on the backend. Your day-to-day will be working with our existing design and engineering team, which is about eight people. You’ll collaborate with one other front-end developer, as well as with some very talented backend and DevOps engineers.
For our full-time employees, we offer:
ExaVault is headquartered in San Ramon, CA. We’ve been remote since before it was cool, and have employees throughout the US, Europe & Asia. Take a look at your potential future teammates on our about us page. Some of us work from home, some from co-working spaces, and some from coffee shops or other locations. You should have a quiet, professional, distraction-free workspace (either at home or elsewhere) from which to work; we’ll pay for a membership to a co-working space if you’d like.
A note on applying from David, the CEO
Online job postings are a little bit like online dating sites. There are thousands of people out there, all with great skills. There are also thousands of jobs, all great opportunities. We need to find the one person who’s the right fit for us… the right skills, the right mindset… somebody who will fit into our culture. You (hopefully) need to find the one job that’s right for you: something where you’re as excited to go to work on the 1000th day as you are on the 1st day.
So how do we meet each other? The signal-to-noise ratio on the Internet is low. This is probably the 100th job post you’ve looked at, and we get hundreds of candidates every time we put up a listing like this. I have a proposal:
I’ve tried to share a lot about our company and our culture in this post, and on our website, and elsewhere. Do a little homework on us. After that, if this job really, truly excites you, and you think you’d be great at it, tell me why in your cover letter. I don’t need to know that you worked at ‘ACME, Inc.’ for ten years — I can get that from your resume. And I don’t need to know that you’re ‘professional, responsive and detail-oriented’. Everybody says that. I’m reading every submission personally, and what I really need to know is who you are, what you can do, and why you think this would be awesome.
You should apply using the button on this page, but if you have questions about the job or just want to make an extra pitch for yourself, my email is email@example.com
I’m a real person, and you are too. Let’s start there.
